31 Mar 2021: Ajaz Khan arrested by NCB after eight-hour-long interrogation; claims innocence

Actor Ajaz Khan, who is widely known for his stint on Bigg Boss, was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Wednesday after eight hours of interrogation in connection with a drug case.

He was detained from the Mumbai airport yesterday when he returned from Rajasthan.

Reportedly, Khan's name surfaced when drug peddler Shadab Batata was interrogated.

Here's more.

Raid: NCB believes Khan is associated with a drug syndicate

The agency conducted raids in Andheri and Lokhandwala areas and found Alprazolam tablets from Khan's residence. NCB maintained that Khan is part of Batata's syndicate.

Notably, the peddler was arrested last week and over two kg of Mephedrone drug was recovered from him.

Batata's subsequent revelations led the agency to Khan. The actor was taken for a medical examination today.

Claims: He said NCB only found 'four sleeping pills'

However, on Wednesday morning, Khan claimed that the NCB personnel didn't find anything either from his residence or at the airport.

When prodded by reporters about the drugs found from his home, he replied, "Nothing. Ask them where they got it...what they got was four sleeping pills. My wife had miscarried and was in depression. She was taking those pills."

Fact: 'My wife is using pills as antidepressants'
